What is Rybelsus?
Rybelsus is an oral (tablet) prescription medication used to treat and manage Type 2 Diabetes, and is prescribed off-label for the treatment of weight loss.
The active ingredient is Semaglutide which mimics the action of one of your bodies natural hormones (GLP1). It contains the same ingredient as Ozempic, which is a once weekly injection. Unlike the injections, Rebelsus is a tablet which is taken once daily.
For the treatment of weight loss, Rybelsus is suitable for those with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 and over (or 27-30 with a weight-related comorbidity) and must be taken alongside a healthy diet and exercise regime to see the full benefits.
Important to note that oral semaglutide (Rybelsus) has not been approved as a form of weight loss medication as of yet. If you have any concerns or queries – get in touch with us and one of our experts will be happy to help.
